It’s been a race against time to finish the last few paintings in my studio before I head back up to Baltimore for MFA classes at Maryland Institute College of Art.
Things got trippy in my studio with lots of spirals happening in my latest paintings.
I was able to snap a few progress shots of my first circular panel piece, all sculpted oil on wood.
And the finished piece:
It came out just as expected from my sketches from my residency at Morris Graves Foundation (which rarely happens in my studio!) The palette is very candy-like (taffy, anyone???). It’s 24 inch diameter panel, so a good size in comparison to my past sculpted paintings.
They’re so good, you could ride those oil waves!
It made my day when I finally had the chance to see my bus billboard in person on the highway in Tampa recently. It still never ceases to make me giggle seeing that!
Today is my last day in Tampa until August, but I look forward to 7 weeks of intense studio time in Maryland.
